Description

By Allan C. Lewis

By 1900, the scenic beauty of the Pike’s Peak region had become well known, making it a popular destination with visitors from across the nation. This influx of tourism along with the apex of the Cripple Creek Mining boom saw El Paso and Teller Counties become a hub of freight and passenger activity. Over the next 30 years and through challenging economic times, the area would be served by 11 different railroads and an interurban line. The author has spent the last 30 years assembling an impressive library of railroad images. His collection serves as the foundation for this 128 page, softcover book which has been published with Arcadia Press.
